    Love love love!! I was a bit skeptical about this product, usually when something is marketed as “multi-functional” it helps for everything except my problem, but this serum really does it all! It feels a bit oily when applying, but yet it is not oily at all. It absorbs beautifully into the skin.

  2. Ntombikayise Mtimba (verified owner)

    When I started using Skin functional, I was skeptical due to so many products and Dermatologists not being able to remedy my acne until 10% Azelaic Acid came through. my skin is glowing 😍.

    I have tried a myriad of products to try to root out my acne for over a decade. So I started using this serum with low expectations. I also know that it takes extended and consistent use of products to see results. However, I am pleasantly surprised to find that it has already improved my inflammation, reduced some of my newer PIH and PIE, and seems to be preventing new breakouts.
    I have not experienced any irritation using the product. I will definitely repurchase if these results keep up.

    I recommend that anyone struggling with PIH/PIE and resistant inflammatory acne give this a go.

    I just love the feel and look of my skin after I have dabbed this serum on. It looks like I have proper glowy skin!
